Greg Heffernan, Zach Koeber and Dan Hirshorn are Archie Pelago — a bliss-bearing experiment in wedding cello, saxophone and the rolling swagger of emerging sounds in bass music. The trio, who met through a cascade of fortunate coincidence and correspondence spread across New York city, have been producing together since Autumn of 2010. Their diverse sources of inspiration resonate clearly in their growing body of work. While the group produces their music collectively, each member brings something particular to the fold: Greg his cello, Zach his saxophone and Dan his trumpet and DJing expertise. Together they bend their respective tools into a vibrant, meditative architecture that bears the weight of their influences.
The Shrinin EP presents some of Archie Pelago’s finest works to date. We really think the music speaks for itself with this release; plunge into something sultry and searing with emotion, a collection of pieces that evoke both alien frames of mind and familiar states of déjà vu.
